Egypt and Huddersfield winger Ramadan Sobhi will remain on the sidelines when his team visits Everton on Saturday for an English Premier League match, as the player has not yet recovered from an injury, his coach said.

“We will miss three players tomorrow; Jonathan Hogg because of his three-match ban, and Ben Hamer and Ramadan Sobhi, who have both got knocks on their knees," Huddersfield's coach David Wagner said in the match's press conference on Friday.

The Pharaohs player wasn't included in Huddersfield's squad for the Cardiff City match last week, after picking up an injury in the trainings.

"Both [Hamer and Sobhi] will not be available tomorrow, but I have good information that both will be in contention after the international break if everything goes to plan," the coach added.

Winger Sobhi made his debut with Huddersfield on 19 August, coming on as a second-half substitute in the 6-1 loss to Manchester City.

The 21-year-old penned a three-year deal with Huddersfield Town in June, a few days before playing with Egypt in their 2018 World Cup campaign.

The former Ahly and Stoke City man featured in all three of Egypt’s games in Russia, but was used as a substitute.

Huddersfield have secured just one point from three matches this season after losing to Chelsea and Manchester City, before the 0-0 draw against Cardiff City.
